  • Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson botches first pitch at Detroit Tigers game

    April 10, 2013 12:02 PM 164

    Robinson "threw" the first pitch in the Detroit Tigers 7-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in Detroit on Tuesday. I put "threw" in quotation marks, because Shoelace bounce passed the baseball toward home plate in a Trey Burke-to-Glen Rice III fashion.

  • Nets blow past 76ers as Johnson continues to heal

    April 10, 2013 7:16 AM 160

    The biggest news for the Nets last night wasn’t their easy 104-83 win over the 76ers, or the fact their magic number to clinch the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and homecourt advantage in the first round dropped to three games. It wasn’t even the way Brook Lopez and Reggie Evans combined to torch Philadelphia in the paint. Instead, it was the fact Joe Johnson

  • NY Knicks missing Tyson Chandler makes Kenyon Martin's ankle injury hurt even more

    April 10, 2013 7:14 AM 214

    Martin, who had missed the previous two games with a sore left knee, was still in the game at the start of the fourth quarter of a blowout game.

With All-Star center Tyson Chandler already sitting out the Knicks’

    April 10, 2013 6:55 AM 141

    Kobe Bryant looked around, drew in a breath and gathered himself. Time for one of the game's best closers to get to work with the score tied to start the fourth quarter. He fueled a desperate rally with 23 of his 30 points in the last 12 minutes, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the New Orleans Hornets 104-96 on Tuesday night to keep their playoff hopes

  • Jay-Z starts to cast Nets

    April 10, 2013 6:47 AM 140

    Rap mogul Jay-Z has begun the process of selling off his small stake in the Brooklyn Nets — a move that’s necessary because he’s seeking certification to represent NBA players as an agent. Sources said yesterday that the public face of the Nets hopes to sell off his less-than-1 percent interest in the team in time for his new sports-management business

  • Angels' high-wire pitching act ends badly in 9-5 loss to Oakland

    April 10, 2013 6:31 AM 216

    C.J. Wilson wobbles but has Angels positioned to win after six innings. Then Kevin Jepsen gets shelled in the seventh. The optimism associated with the home opener was tempered Tuesday for the Angels, who lost Jered Weaver for four to six weeks after the right-hander was diagnosed with a broken bone in his left elbow, a huge blow for a team that was lacking

  • Jonathan Quick can't save Kings from falling apart versus Stars

    April 10, 2013 6:16 AM 163

    Dallas scores four goals in the third period to beat the sloppy Kings, 5-1. DALLAS — Every time the Kings teetered during the first 40 minutes against the Stars on Tuesday, a sharp and agile Jonathan Quick kept them in it with a chest save here, a pad save there. Though he was in rare vintage form, he couldn't continue to work miracles, and his strong

  • Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant lead Thunder over Jazz

    April 10, 2013 5:56 AM 194

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The roller coaster continued for the Utah Jazz. One minute they're in, the next they're out. But even after Tuesday's 90-80 loss to Oklahoma City, players weren't about to concede the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference to the Los Angeles Lakers. "We still got a chance," point guard Mo Williams said. "I'm not sitting
